In relation to delivering nice worth at each stage, few can do it higher than Realme at present. This extends to flagship killing gives, as properly, the place the Realme GT line has been gathering a whole lot of consideration recently. Notably the Realme GT 5G, which gives a Snapdragon 888 chipset and 120Hz Tremendous AMOLED panel on a price range, amongst different issues.
Spicing issues up additional and in an final quest to carry the utmost option to the shopper, Realme additionally created the Realme GT Neo. That’s what now we have on the workplace right this moment. To be extra exact – our evaluate unit is the Realme X7 Max 5G, which is actually the identical system, as it’s already being offered in India. For now, the GT Neo is a China-exclusive.
What Realme did is actually take the Realme GT and swap out the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset for a MediaTek Dimensity 1200 one. The latter is at present the highest canine within the Dimensity lineup and isn’t a very widespread chip. Actually, that is the primary time we’re seeing the Dimensity 1200.
Realme X7 Max 5G specs at a look:
- Physique: 158.5×73.3×8.4mm, 179g; Glass entrance, plastic body, plastic again; Splash resistant.
- Show: 6.43″ Tremendous AMOLED, 120Hz, 1000 nits (peak), 1080x2400px decision, 20:9 side ratio, 409ppi.
- Chipset: MediaTek MT6893 Dimensity 1200 5G (6 nm): Octa-core (1×3.Zero GHz Cortex-A78 & 3×2.6 GHz Cortex-A78 & 4×2.Zero GHz Cortex-A55); Mali-G77 MC9.
- Reminiscence: 128GB 8GB RAM, 256GB 12GB RAM; UFS 3.1.
- OS/Software program: Android 11, Realme UI 2.0.
- Rear digicam: Large (major): 64 MP, f/1.8, 26mm, 1/1.73″, 0.8µm, PDAF; Extremely large angle: Eight MP, f/2.3, 16mm, 119-degree, 1/4.0″, 1.12µm; Macro: 2 MP, f/2.4.
- Entrance digicam: 16 MP, f/2.5, 26mm (large), 1/3.0″, 1.0µm.

- Battery: 4500mAh; Quick charging 50W, 50% in 16 min (marketed), Reverse charging 2.5W.
- Misc: Fingerprint reader (below show, optical); NFC; 3.5mm jack.
Past this chipset swap, the X7 Max / GT Neo is just about similar to the vanilla Realme GT. You get the identical 6.43-inch, 120Hz, Tremendous AMOLED show, in addition to an similar digicam setup, primarily based on a 64MP major got here, with an 8MP ultrawide, 2MP macro cam and a 16MP selfie. There are some minor variations, as properly, principally associated to the marginally completely different characteristic units of the 2 chips.
As an example, the Realme X7 Max 5G is capped at 50W of quick charging on its 4,500 mAh battery, as an alternative of the 65W the vanilla Realme GT will get. The Dimensity 1200 is provided with Bluetooth 5.1, as an alternative of the 5.2 modem on the common mannequin. Past that, nevertheless, the Dimensity manages to ship just about each characteristic, together with 5G connectivity and DSP capabilities.
Actually, the adoption of the MediaTek chip might even be behind an odd distinction in excessive refresh fee dealing with, which we noticed on the Realme X7 Max 5G, in comparison with different current Realme telephones. However, we’ll get to that within the efficiency part of the evaluate, which can possible be essentially the most attention-grabbing bit general, seeing how the Dimensity 1200 is sort of the highlight of the expertise.
Earlier than we transfer on additional with the evaluate, we should always level out, as soon as extra, that although just about all of our findings will apply to the Realme GT Neo, as properly, we’re basing our evaluate on a Realme X7 Max 5G unit.
Additionally, wanting on the two specs sheets intimately reveals that the X7 Max 5G formally advertises a number of extras its Chinese language counterpart lacks, or a minimum of doesn’t formally promote. These embrace splash resistance, Dragontrail Glass on the entrance for cover, in addition to 2.5W reverse charging help.
Lastly, to the very best of our data, there isn’t a 6GB RAM model of the Realme X7 Max 5G accessible, whereas the Realme GT Neo does supply that in its base tier.
The Realme X7 Max 5G kicks it off with 8GB of RAM and goes as much as 12GB. That is what now we have in our evaluate unit, alongside 256GB of non-expandable UFS 3.1 storage.
Our Realme X7 Max 5G unit got here in a pleasant, thick two-piece silver field. When it comes to equipment, you get a charger and USB Kind-A to Kind-C cable, in addition to a pleasant clear TPU case. An appreciated addition so you possibly can stand up and working immediately.
For quick charging, the X7 Max 5G has SuperDart. It maxes out at 50W on the facet of the cellphone. Although, the included charger we received is able to as much as 65W of SuperDart charging. That is carried out with a [email protected] output. Clearly a non-standard output, which is why you want the provided USB cable to make it work because it has an additional pin for negotiation. With out the cable or the wall ward, you’re restricted to 10W charging, which the supplied charger does additionally help with a [email protected] output.
Utilizing a proprietary cable is way from preferrred and we want Realme switches over to a Kind-C to Kind-C implementation of their charging, ideally with USB PD help, sooner fairly than later.
It’s also price noting that in accordance with among the official Realme documentation we obtained, the X7 Max 5G would possibly ship with a 65W SuperDart charger in some locations. That’s of little precise sensible consequence to consumers, although.
